My sincere apologies if I have the wrong family, but I extend my condolences none-the-less. I'm certain this has been a difficult time for all and I send my thoughts and prayers.

I had a wonderful teacher, Mr. Kemp, and I many wonderful conversations on varying topics including the great pride he felt in his family and his daughter. I have hoped for the opportunity to tell Mr. Kemp of the positive influence he has had on my life.

I can imagine the sorrow Stephanie's family is feeling at this time and I hope you will pardon the intrusion.

I, too, am not in your circle of friends or family, however, my daughter was born 5/24/74 and died on 2/8/2016. I've been raising one of her three adopted children for almost four years and he is doing so well. The family had been under a great deal of angst before Tess died. It is difficult as her mother and I don't have contact with the rest of her family. Her identical twin is heartbroken. You will carry her with you always in your hearts. I wish you all the best.

We raised our kids in South Jordan and Stephanie was one of their best friends. She sang so beautifully and is so sweet. Our hearts go out to her entire family. GOD Bless you all.

I'm not a person whom stands out in your circle of friends and family.

I do check the obits daily, and for some reason I was compelled to send my

sorrow and pain your family and friends are suffering now.

May God be with you, and know you will see her again.

Families are forever.

Sincerely yours:

Tina Marie
